Why jump at Midwest Freefall? Well, because it balances excellent facilities with a friendly, laid-back, community-centered vibe. The atmosphere is as warm as a family living room, but one with all the skydiving trimmings. There’s cosy carpeted indoor packing, space to lounge between loads, free Wi-Fi, a rigging loft, flat screen monitors for video review and shady picnic tables from which to watch the proceedings. In short, it’s the most family friendly dropzone you could imagine.
Traveling jumpers are welcome to camp on-site (and importantly, take a hot shower in the hangar). Experienced jumpers will be interested to know that Midwest Freefall is a full-time turbine DZ, and it boasts the highest lift capacity in the entire state.
Sure, it’s an inviting home base for experienced skydivers working towards excellence in their chosen disciplines. But Midwest Freefall is also about welcoming new skydivers into the sport. The dropzone welcomes new tandem skydivers into the air every day and teaches new jumpers the ropes using the tried-and-tested Accelerated Freefall method.
